Other than the two day window it was made in , and basic production data and it's last state of residence I do not know
much about my 51 minor .It does have a KPH speedometer which was one of the few instrument options according to the book at that
Would the fact that somebody selected the option tell me anything about the cars early home.???

Could have been dispatched to most any part of the world or the speedo was replaced with one that had been.

at the risk of being denounced as pedantic, the correct abbreviation is km/h. All lower case. The metric system has a comprehensive code for abbreviations, capitals being mostly reserved for initials of the people fundamental and derived units are named after. Watt = W, Newton =N, Ampere = A, but kilometre = km and hour =h.

No self respecting pedant would list
Watt or Newton with Boney's rhubarb

I've got an identical one here from a Dutch car built in the Molenaar factory. MPH part number 135639 and KPH is 135640. Axle ratios of 4.55 and 5.2 available from day 1. MM parts manual suggests there were 5 different ratio options for the early axle but only lists 2 of them.

PS. My sister lives just a few miles from you, Kevin
